This dual classic winner stands at the Irish National Stud but has just 18 known individuals in his first crop and, given his race record, it is possible that his best results will come in Italy.
He is one of a growing number of stallion sons for Dubawi (by Dubai Millennium), whose first one is the classic winner and classic sire Makfi, and he is out of a winning half-sister to the dam of Group 1 Deutsches Derby winner and somewhat successful sire Dai Jin (by Peintre Celebre).
His dam, Wigman (by Rahy), is also related to a Brazilian Grade 1 scorer, and the third dam of Worthadd is White Star Line (by Northern Dancer), who won the Grade 1 Alabama Stakes, Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks and Grade 1 Delaware Oaks.
The best of her progeny was the Group 2 Prix de Pomone scorer Whitehaven (by Top Ville), who is the ancestor of a couple of pattern winners in Australia, and she also has four other daughters who got some good results at stud.
Star Spectable (by Spectacular Bid) is the dam of German Group 3 scorer Capricho (by Lake Coniston), Group 2-placed White Star (by Darshaan) is the dam of Group 2 Prix Eugene Adam winner Harland (by Halling), and Hill of Snow (by Reference Point) is responsible for both Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes heroine Preseli (by Caerleon) and middle-distance Group 3 scorer Kong (by Sadler's Wells).
The fourth one is Lustre (by Halo). She was listed and Group 3 placed before becoming the dam of Group 1 Oaks d'Italia winner Valley Of Gold (by Shirley Heights) and of Group 1-placed juvenile Group 3 scorer Dublin (by Carson City).
In addition to her classic success, Valley Of Gold was runner-up in the Group 1 Prix Vermeille, third in the Group 1 Irish Oaks, and she is the dam of both the Group 3 Gordon Stakes winner Cap O'Rushes (by New Approach) and Group 3 Joel Stakes scorer Splendid Era (by Green Desert). Lustre is also the grandam of Group 2 Park Stakes winner Duff (by Spinning World).
White Star Line was a half-sister to the Group 1 Prix Morny winner Filiberto (by Ribot; sire of Group 1 winner Grease), to Alcibiades Stakes winner and blacktype producer Fairway Fun (by Prince John), and to Trick Chick (by Prince John), who was the dam of the French champion Northern Trick (by Northern Dancer).
That star won the Group 1 Prix de Diane (French Oaks) and Group 1 Prix Vermeille in 1984, she was runner-up in the Group 1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe and Group 1 Prix Saint-Alary, and her descendants include the Group 1 stars Shiva (by Hector Protector), Light Shift (by Kingmambo) and Main Sequence (by Aldebaran), triple Grade 1-chase star Dodging Bullets (by Dubawi), and also the 2016 pattern-winning three-year-olds Cloth Of Stars (by Sea The Stars) and Ulysses (by Galileo), among others of note.
